When to Consider PRP for Hair Restoration

Men and women alike can experience thinning hair, especially in older age. Unfortunately, over-the-counter sprays, creams, and shampoos often don’t work, leaving you feeling more frustrated than before. 

Thankfully, patients now have a greater range of treatment options than ever for thinning hair and hair loss. One increasingly popular option is PRP therapy, which we’re thrilled to offer for hair restoration at Hermann Aesthetics & Wellness. 

What is PRP Therapy?

PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. Commonly used for orthopedic conditions, skin rejuvenation, and now hair restoration, this form of regenerative medicine offers powerful results without surgery. 

To administer PRP therapy, your provider will first draw a small amount of your own blood. This blood is then processed in a centrifuge to isolate and concentrate the healing platelets. Then, the PRP is injected directly into the scalp to stimulate hair growth. 

How Does PRP Hair Restoration Work For Hair Loss?

The growth factors in PRP can revive dormant hair follicles to stimulate new hair growth, as well as thicken existing hairs. Additionally, PRP therapy stimulates the flow of blood, oxygen, and healing nutrients to the hair follicles, leading to increased hair growth. 

When to Consider PRP Hair Restoration

You should consider PRP hair restoration if:

  • Your hair is thinning or falling out
  • Your hairline has significantly receded
  • Hair loss has diminished your self-confidence
  • Over-the-counter hair growth products haven’t produced the results that you want

As a minimally-invasive procedure, PRP therapy is a safer alternative to hair transplant surgery. It can be used for men and women alike, as well as patients ranging in age from 18 to 72. Generally, PRP therapy offers the best results for recent hair loss, as the platelets have a better chance of reawakening recently-dormant hair follicles.
